Rural Emergency Medicine Course
The Rural Emergency Medicine Course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to review low-frequency, high-risk emergencies and practice lifesaving procedures in a realistic, controlled teaching environment. Our highly relevant and informative core sessions are updated each year by board-certified emergency medicine physicians. The 2020 event will include small group skills labs using patient simulators, lightly embalmed cadavers, and standardized patients. Procedure-based learning will include basic intubation, rescue airway devices and surgical airways, splinting, intraosseous access, chest tubes, domestic violence recognition and treatment, mega-code simulations, ultrasound guided IV access, and EKG interpretation. The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Children's Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha are co-providing this event with the goal to offer diverse learning opportunities related to both adult and pediatric emergencies.
